If the grinder has never been used before it is. But I wouldn't risk it at this price if you don't know the seller or the grinders exact history..

The RR45 is a solid commercial grinder. It is pretty hard to mess it up, along with nearly every other commercial grinder. That is not a bad price at all for one, practically a steal. It will need burrs, they do not cost much, around $50 from memory.
The weak link is the stepped adjustment but it isn't difficult to work around and the quality of grind is there in spades. I hope you get it :D

Just a word up NOT to post the sale link here.
Also, why not look up previous sales.
FWIW, a used Mazzer SJ, a superior grinder (and it's stepless) can often be had for $350 + $50 for a new set of burrs.
Count on having to buy new burrs, no matter what the seller says.

There are two adjusting rings that work with the RR45/RR45A. One has 48 positions and the other has 80. I have an 80 position adjustment on my RR45A. There are threads on Home Barista.com on switching to the 80.

The RR45 takes up a lot of space, but it will be the last grinder you'll ever need to purchase. $125 is a great price, but you should expect to replace the burrs.

Jon, that's his bid, but it may not be final selling price.
What would be his top price to pay?

My feeling is the that $250 would not be too much and would be fair. Then you add shipping and a new set of burrs but you will do that with any grinder you buy and needs to be shipped. Shipping should be about $45 plus insurance of a couple dollars.

he guys, sorry for posting this late. of course the seller says that the burrs are in perfect shape, and i a going to get the grinder today, its close to the place i live. bought it or 125. Lets hope that it's going to be in good condition. and i will look into the adjusting rings. I also found out that its not a rossi rr45 but a CMA rr45, looks like there is no diffence, except for the cma looks like plastic??

I'll post later about the machine.

Rossi rr45's appear under a variety of names, including CMA and Brasilia.

Oke, this machine is amazing.
I have never worked with other machines so i cant compare, but this one is amazing.
I do have one question.
While it gives me exactly 7 grams, and i ussualy use a double espresso filter, i get twice 7 grams. 23 sec extraction time. Perfect
But when i use the single espresso filter, and make a single, it takes 15 sec extraction time. Is this happening because i put a wrong pressure with my tamper, or is it possible it has something to do with the machine.??
